It became known how the fight Usyk - Fury will end
Billy Nelson, the trainer of the famous super heavyweight Martin Bakole (20-1, 15 KOs), made his forecast for the fight between WBA, WBO, IBO, IBF titles holder Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and WBC champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs). According to the expert, the fight will end early.
Nelson is confident that Fury will knock Usyk out by the end of the fight. Oleksandr will survive the beginning of the fight, but will not be able to win.
"Tyson has a fantastic boxing intelligence. Fury will shorten the distance and won't allow Oleksandr to run away from the ropes as easily as he did in his two fights against Anthony Joshua," Nelson said in an interview with Boxing-social.
We would like to remind you that the mega-fight for the absolute heavyweight championship between Usyk and Fury will take place on February 17, 2024. The WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO titles will be at stake. This will be the first battle in the history of the four-belt era.
On January 25, it became known that the Usyk-Fury fight faced a serious problem.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, the winner of the historic fight for the absolute heavyweight title between Fury and Usyk will receive a special new belt.
Former cruiserweight world champion and now boxing analyst Johnny Nelson has suggested that this fight between the British and Ukrainian will not take place.
Previously, this evening was scheduled for December 23, but Tyson Fury was cut during the fight with Francis Ngannou and the confrontation was postponed. Before that, Oleksandr Usyk fought Daniel Dubois and won by knockout.
The last absolute champion in heavyweight was Lennox Lewis - in 1999, he held the WBA, WBC, and IBF belts, which was enough for such a title.
